The outside area with the pool and garden is well organized. The beach restaurants within the walking distance are not the best, a car is a must. Very large beach wit good access to the water, no stones just clean sand.

It was well placed for that and great for our family of 4 adults. pros- the Fabulous views. Day and night! the spaces for eating, playing cards, watching TV (in French) the spacious bedrooms the pool area. Pretty and great furniture. the plancha cooking station close enough to Pals beach, but in quiet residential area general atmosphere of the area cons- the roadworks were a pain, but should be finished soon the bedrooms got really hot when we had very hot days, which meant keeping the windows open. Only one fan available. We couldn't get into the villa until after 4pm the pool was rather chilly there is no upstairs toilet for the tower room. However, it really was a great house and would stay there again.
